Dental implants serve as the base for many tooth-replacement options, including bridges, dentures, and individual artificial teeth. Implants are surgically placed in the jaw to provide a comfortable, secure fit and a natural appearance.
In the first one or two appointments, the post or anchor is implanted in the jaw. The replacement tooth, bridge or denture is fitted and installed when the bone and gums have healed. The surgery is performed in our office with local or general anesthesia.
